His Warsaw Philharmonic recital in the 2003 season was given the highest critical acclaim and since then he has been a frequent guest at the National Philharmonic in Warsaw. Other notable appearances include festivals in Ravello, Bratislava, and the Kremlin Music Festival in Moscow, and in 2005 he was a jury member at the XXI International Piano Festival in Bucaramanga, Colombia.
